    Again I completely disagree and I know about the arcade versions.

    Ports post-Sonic?

    Street Fighter II and Super Street Fighter II look good (despite underusing the hardware in terms of resolution and sprites) and are better games than their SNES counterparts.

    Puyo Puyo 1 and 2 look better than PC Engine or SNES.

    Atomic Runner looks great (much better than the arcade).

    Samurai Shodown looks great (just too bad they cheaped on the cart size and thus it lacks one character).

    Saturday Night Slam Masters looks good.

    Snow Bros. looks great.

    Joe & Mac looks good, better than SNES in my opinion (less colors but higher resolution plus better animation not to mention much more sprites onscreen!).

    These are the ones I can think of right now. So for a system that was released in 1988 and that only cost $190 at launch, the Mega Drive is simply amazing and has the advantage over its competitors in the areas that matter more (CPU, resolution, sprite capabilities...).


    edit: since I'm at it, I've just posted a thread about 4th gen hardware comparison here: http://www.sega-16.com/forum/showthr...a-or-PC-Engine. Feel free to share your thoughts there!

    A good port, single player at least.

    ok

    Ye, I noticed Zebbe post. Weird that the game would struggle like that in 2 player mode, it's not like if it was an impressive game by Mega Drive standards.
